>> political reporter jamie dupree joins us from washington dc. some republicans -- explain why they're frustrated by this investigation. >> it was a pretty interesting moment in that tape you just played from the hear being the guy who is the head of the national counterterrorism center. that may sound like mum bow jumbo but it's an important part of u.s. intelligence gathering. he labeled last week's attacks as a terrorist attack. republicans are frustrated because they feel like that should have been the description from the get go. john mccain was about ready to just explode. he was so mad he was clutching the latest report about that hearing and talking to us about it. republicans just argue that this administration í has not done enough and did not do enough on security related to the 9/11
anniversary last week. that's certainly to come up today in today ease closed door brief being the secretary of state. >> reading your blog there was questions about security planning and about why no marines at been sent. was there intelligence there was going to be an attack or just expecting there to be extra security all over the world on 9/11?. >> that's the question that they want to know. the white house briefing has not given us much on information on that. that's what senators and house members want to know, should it have spurred a bit more security. you're right, if you're going the take 9/11 into account everywhere do you have enough people to be sent all over the place. the fact is that there were no marines, that there were security provisions in place but nothing extra that was done in
relation to this 9/11 anniversary. a year ago nothing happened then and maybe that colored what happened this year in terms oh of that security. you know, 20/20 hindsight it might sound political opportunist i can but it's going to be used a lot no matter what. >> you mentioned that some republicans feel mitt romney focusing on the economy, but this is a good time for him to focus on foreign policy? >> you make a valid point. some poll number s have gone down for the president and his handling of foreign policy and maybe mitt romney should go that way. the republicans make the case that the economic factor is the biggest one and the best one for romney to campaign on. what was it the president noted in his acceptance speech, he noted how neither mitt romney nor paul ryan had much experience in foreign policy matters. it may be that republicans in the congress will take up the cause
of attacking the administration on more of foreign policy and let mitt romney and paul ryan focus more on economic matters. the polls still the same. an edge to the president ever so slightly in most of those 10 swing states. >> thank you. you can find a link to jamie washington insider log on our website at ktvu.com. pull down the news menu bar and go to our politics page. sal is back to tell you about our morning rush. it is rush. >> it is rush. let's take a look at what we have now. this is 880. it has been a mess from downtown oakland. this is the unexpected delay that catches people off guard heading to the airport at oakland. you need to negotiate more time. you need to give yourself more time to negotiate interstate 880 because of a crash at 880 northbound at
